Project Goals

MOH worked closely with the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) in land use planning and establishing development and design requirements for the Marcella/Highland project area. MOH has also collaborated extensively with its valued community partner, the Highland Park Project Review Committee (HPPRC), to identify and assess best uses for public land in the Highland Park area. In 2018, MOH and HPPRC co-sponsored several community meetings to provide a forum for discussion and input on development and design guidelines for the Highland/Marcella project area.

In January, 2018 MOH issued an RFP for five Development Packages comprised of 33 parcels on Marcella and Highland Streets. The guidelines established in the 2018 RFP reflected community preferences regarding preferred and acceptable uses. Those guidelines also reflect the goals of Energy Positive (E+) Green Building Program and the Highland Park community’s aspiration to be the most sustainable neighborhood in the City.

MOH received proposals from several developers for three of the five Development Packages included in the 2018 RFP and worked with the HPPRC and BPDA to assess and review them. Community meetings were held in April, 2018 at which RFP respondents presented their respective development plans. Development teams were subsequently selected for Development Packages 1, 2, and 4.

MOH issued an RFP for the development of packages 3 and 5 according to the guidelines and objectives set forth on May 2, 2022, with proposals due no later than June 30, 2022, at 4:00 PM.
